Health and Well Being Group
Date: 29th April 2019
Details:  Every Monday, 11am - 1pm

The group is aimed at anyone who feels their health or general well being would benefit from a morning among friends, usually with the option of joining in with an activity. You might be lonely, suffer from mental health problems, or just want an extra something to fill your time. All are welcome. We're a pretty varied bunch. Activities in the past have included floristry, creative writing and other creative things, and also learning about things that affect our group members, like pain, Asperger's and dementia, and sometimes even Bingo.

Gong Baths
Date: 30th April 2019
Details:  Tuesday 30th April, 6.30pm - 8pm

A gong bath is best experienced lying down, so please bring whatever you need to be comfy on the floor. Cushions, blankets, mat etc.

During a gong session, your body absorbs sounds that it needs for healing whilst filtering out what is no longer required. The complex, yet delicate, overtones of the gongs, allow your superficial thoughts to dissipate and you can easily reach a much deeper consciousness leaving you in a very calm, relaxed state. The gong vibrations continue to work long after the gong bath has finished. Gong healing works on various levels - physical, mental, energetic, emotional and spiritual. Negativity and chaos are suspended; irregularity and resistance disappear and the whole being is returned to harmonic balance.

Come along and try this treat for the soul. Ask anyone who has experienced the gongs and they will tell you it is the ultimate reset button.

£10 per person

To book a place, please telephone the Hospice reception on 01942 525566 and ask for someone from the Oak Centre.
